Dakar-inspired place of grand contrasts
BUILT by Zorzi Builders, this home is a modern masterpiece and a place of contrasts; it is both austere and opulent, a family home and a superb entertainer.
It was inspired by the style of the Villa Sow in Dakar and was built to capitalise on the river and city views available from the elevated site and has panoramic vistas from the middle and top level from Applecross all the way to the Perth city skyline.
Versatility is a key feature of the impressive residence.
A self-contained space on the basement level opens directly to the pool area and can be used as a gym, games area, guest suite, or extension of the swimming pool entertaining space.
A custom-made pivot front door opens to a majestic entry with views to a courtyard.
The layout leads to a roomy open-plan living/dining/kitchen area that opens to the courtyard and an incredible alfresco area overlooking the pool and offering stunning views.
It is an amazing place to entertain family and friends and has been cleverly designed with the barbecue cooking space located in the courtyard to allow for social cooking, while also keeping smoke and aromas out of the alfresco area.
Another sophisticated feature is the rustic wine cellar with rough-cut timber and steel wine racks.
The upstairs children’s wing includes three bedrooms, each with an ensuite, a living area and powder room.
The master wing is a magnificent private retreat for parents.
It has a lounge area, walk-in robe, open-plan ensuite with his-and-hers vanity units, freestanding bath and picture windows that allow city views from the shower.
You can also enjoy views over the treetops to the river and Mosman
Park from your bed or step out to the private balcony.
The home has quality features including silvabella and black granite benchtops, European oak flooring and Vintec and Miele appliances.
It is on an 827sq m block, is close to cafes, restaurants and bars, and a five-minute drive from the South Perth foreshore.
